Penguin Pattern Close-up from the Randy Pausch Bridge
In November 2009, a permanent memorial was announced — The Randy Pausch Memorial Bridge.
During his many classroom discussions, Randy reminded students that even in dangerous waters, one penguin had to be brave enough to take the first dive.
At the end of the semester, he often gave "The First Penguin" award to the student(s) who took the biggest risk.
The design of the Pausch Bridge pays tribute to all the "penguins" of the world with abstract penguin cut-outs.
And the light show. Each series of light refers to different parts of Randy's lecture. Watch the light show: cmu.li/8d2bN
